We were happy to learn this week that Professor Yvonne Captain will be the new program director for our mid-career Master of International Policy and Practice program (MIPP).
“I am a graduate of the MIPP Program. After teaching at GW for a number of years in literature, I decided to expand my knowledge and research to the social sciences. As a consequence, my research areas have now shifted to reflect my new interests. As the new director of the MIPP Program, I’m honored to follow in the footsteps of all of my predecessors, but most notably Dean Maurice East. I look forward to working closely with all of the students in the program, including alumni.”
Professor Captain teaches courses related to Latin America and International Affairs at The George Washington University. She is an expert on the African Diaspora, and South-South relations, particularly between Latin America and Africa. Her other research and practical expertise lies in the internationalization of college campuses.
She has published, interviewed, and lectured widely on the subjects of internationalization, south-south relations, and the African Diaspora. She is an active participant in issues of shared governance at the university level, having served as a member of The George Washington University’s Faculty Senate and on the Dean’s Council.
